Critics reviews

The script is by the great A.I. Bezzerides (Kiss Me Deadly, On Dangerous Ground), who later complained that Wellman insisted on shooting his overwritten first draft, and the story is basically a dysfunctional family drama with metaphysical trimmings. (Bertrand Tavernier has compared it to the work of Dreyer, and it’s certainly the closest that American cinema has ever come to Ordet.)
